  • Slick road contributes to crash

    Sherri Fonseca, 40, of Magnolia, was cited for no proof of insurance and no operator’s license after she crashed her vehicle into an electric pole and cable box about 7 p.m. March 19.

    Fonseca was driving a 1999 Toyota south on Die-Shiboley Road when she lost control in a right-hand curve, according to Deputy Doug Sherrard. The Toyota crossed into the northbound lane, went into a ditch, struck a South Central Rural Telephone cable box and a Nolin RECC pole.

    Wet roads may have contributed to the crash. No injuries were reported.
